Your food from field to plate

FoodSpan FlyerIf your interests include learning about critical issues in the food system, the brand new FoodSpan curriculum beginning in January should stimulate debate about crucial food system topics related to human health, the environment, equality and animal welfare.

The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future developed FoodSpan as a natural outgrowth of the work it does to help build a healthier, more equitable and more resilient food system.

Cooperative Extension Faculty Instructor and Registered Dietitian, Aurora Buffington, will begin offering the FoodSpan curriculum on Jan. 21, 2017.
